The trucks were stopped carrying alcohol worth over R13-million near Kagiso on Wednesday.

South African Breweries (SAB) says it didn't violate COVID-19 lockdown regulations when its trucks carrying over R13-million worth of alcohol was intercepted near Kagiso on Wednesday.

In an effort to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, South Africans are going through a 21-day lockdown.

The lockdown means that a sweeping travel and social gathering restrictions were rolled out across the country.
